RFC #252                                        Bolt Beranek and Newman
NIC #7693                                       8 October 1971
Categories: F, G.3
Updates:  RFC 240
Obsoletes: None

The purpose of this RFC is to report on the recent status of most

Network Hosts. During September 27 through September 29 the BBN prototype
Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) was in-accessible due to hardware
debugging. The Network was, therefore, not examined on these days.

Three Hosts which were not officially able to act as Server's at the

time of RFC #240 are now able to do so. These Hosts are:

------- ---- --------

  2             SRI (NIC)               PDP-10
  6             MIT (Multics)           H-645
  9             HARVARD                 PDP-10

The Harvard PDP-10, however, has limited core space. They will,

therefore, run the Telnet program only occasionally.

The following two tables summarize the information on the Host status

for September 30 - October 8.

D = Dead. (Destination Host either dead or inaccessible [due to network
partitioning or local IMP failure] from the BBN Terminal IMP).

R = Refused. (Destination Host returned a CLS to the initial RFC.)

T = Timed out. (Destination Host did not respond in any way to the initial
RFC, although not dead.)

H = 1/2 Open. (Destination Host opened a connection but then either
immediately closed it, or did not respond any further.)

O = Open. (Destination Host opened a connection and was accessible to users.)

* The UCLA IBM-360/91 currently has Remote Job Service (NETRJS), but has
not implemented a full server Telnet System. The BBN Terminal IMP is not equipped to test NETRJS; however, we are assuming that receipt of the UCLA explanatory message indicates that NETRJS is also functioning.

# These sites advertise that they may not have their system available at
these time.
